Let's first remove the skin from each thigh and place them in a pan with the melted butter and a teaspoon of olive oil. We will seal them for about eight minutes on each side over medium high heat. We remove them from the fire and in the same pan, without washing it, add another teaspoon of oil.

Chop the onion that we fry for about three minutes. Pour in the white wine, the chicken broth and dilute the crème fraiche. Stir, season with salt, pepper and thyme. We lower the fire to a minimum, put the thighs back in the pan and cover. We leave on the fire, always low, for about 20 minutes approximately.
